It creates a tension between two firmly held convictions about Luke's writing: that the Gospel and Acts are a unified work; and that Luke has a special concern for the poor. A fresh solution lies in tracing the intertextual links between Luke and the Septuagint. In the Septuagint, these character types are standard, conventional recipients of God's favour. In Luke's gospel, the primary function of these types is chri.
